[gzochi-devel] Section 3 Installation Documentation suggestion

At first, I had difficulty finding the gzochid.conf file because the section 3 documentation said /etc/.    The preceding  ‘/’  implies a root level path, and not a relative path under the standard location.  


I think the documentation would be more clear if you changed this to the following:



This will install the gzochid executable gzochid to a standard location, depending on the installation prefix—on most Unix-like systems, this will be /usr/local, with executable files being copied to /usr/local/bin. A server configuration file with the default settings will be installed to the /etc/ directory under the installation prefix.



This will install the gzochid executable, gzochid, to a standard location of /usr/local, with the executable files being copied to /usr/local/bin on most Unix-like systems.  Additionally, a server configuration file named, gzochid.conf, will be installed in /usr/local/etc.

Hi Sharon,

Adding GNU dbm and GNU Serveez sources resolved the issues.  Thanks for your prompt reply.


Glad to hear it!


I would like to add two more issues that we resolved:

1.        Curses.h was missing.   We added ncurses-devel to resolve that issue.    The top level ./configure didn’t catch that one.

I'm enhancing some of the checks that the Autoconf scripts use for stuff like the above, and a missing Ncurses should now trigger a build failure as well.

2.       On running the top level configure script, it will fail because it looks for a dependency on itself.   To fix this issue, we added /opt/gzochi-0.3/gzochi-client/meta to our PKG_CONFIG_PATH.

Hmmm, that's interesting. I'll look into that.


And finally, we are having an issue with the linking of the abermud example.  It cannot find –lgzochi


Yeah, I've been trying to figure out what to do about that. One thing you might try is doing:

  sudo make install

in the gzochi-client/ directory before building the examples, in order to ensure libgzochi gets copied to the right place. Let me know if that doesn't work.
